Bringing you all the Tom Waits news since 2004
“Tom invited me to chill out with him in San Francisco, and when I've got time, I will. It's almost like me and Tom were fated to work together.”
Tricky, what? Maybe 10 years ago this would seem somewhat cool.
What's 'cool' got to do with it? Neither Tricky nor Waits sail on the winds of fashion - thank god. It's no surprise to me that there' mutual admiration here, either. I can just imagine Maxinquaye blasting out of Waits's car, not to mention Tricky playing Bone Machine to his Bristolian posse.
"Tricky has plans to collaborate with Tom Waits".Think those plans must be in his head - there is absolutely nothing in that article that confirms that Waits has agreed or that a collaboration is in fact going ahead. Massive Attack were dropping Waits' name a few years back and talking of working together. Nothing came of that. Waits invites Tricky to "chill out" with him and now Tricky "plans to record an album with Tom Waits". Need more to go on than that.
Something just doesn't ring true about this...
